CKA 2021 #5: Falls Lake presented by Greensboro Gardens Recap

The Falls Lake event presented by Greensboro Gardens was hot and a grind! This is the type of event were the hard core fisherman come out to play and put in work! Congrats to all of you that got through the event – and safely – on a busy boating day on the lake! A lot of CKA regulars were out of town battling in Florida and just getting back from the BASS Kayak Championship, but we still managed 52 anglers on Father’s Day weekend!

2021 Falls Champion Rick Rowland
Rick Rowland won the event with 86.25″ with a 20.25″ kicker – Rick had a small limit early, and then he was able to find a spot where the bigger fish were roaming around and occasionally would bite. Great job as usual for Rick who always seems to be able to dial in a bite throughout the day! $875 payday!

2021 Falls 2nd Place Joey Sullivan
2nd Place went to another consistent hammer Joey Sullivan with 83.25″. Joey won the Tournament of Champions in 2019 on Falls Lake, and is always a threat in any kayak event – fresh water, salt water, he probably could find a pattern in the middle of the Sahara if you gave him enough time. Joey also wins a Pair of Solar Bat Sunglasses! $525 payday!

2021 Falls 3rd Place Seth Lubinski
3rd Place went to new kayak angler Seth Lubinski, who battled through the day for a total of 82.75″ besting some of the other hammers in the field in what he claimed is a “cheap kayak” – pricey kayaks don’t catch fish guys and gals – anglers do! Great job Seth! Seth also wins a $50 YakAttack Gift Certificate! $350 payday!

2021 Falls Big Bass winner Bobby Bowers – 22.50″
Big fish went to Bobby Bowers with a 22.50″ Falls Lake toad worth $450! Bobby also ended up in the top 10. Congratulations Bobby!
4th Place – 81.25″ – Will Lambert – $100
5th Place – 77.25″ – Parker Carnes – $100
6th Place – 75.50″ – Eric Nelson
7th Place – 73.25″ – Ryan Hayes – tie breaker big fish 17.75″
8th Place – 73.25″ – Calvin Keller
9th Place – 71.50″ – Bobby Bowers
10th Place – 70.25″ – Jared Stanley
The AOY Leader Mr. Hank Veggian ended up in 11th place for the day for some descent points to keep his CKA Angler of the Year goal on a good path! Great job Henry!

CKA Tournament 1 Shearon Harris Reservoir, NC

CKA Tournament 1 Presented by Basstrail.com

Shearon Harris Reservoir, NC

Overview

Welcome Anglers to 2021 season. If you are new to the Trail, welcome aboard and good luck in the Rookie of the Year race. If you are a CKA regular then you know the battle for Angler of the Year will be long and difficult against some of the best competition in the entire country.

We began last season at Shearon Harris, and Larry Moua landed a 24.25” LM Bass on his way to victory that day. That’s why we fish the lake – two of the 24” fish landed in CKA tournaments came from its waters. Who will catch the third 24” from Harris?

Shearon Harris is a small lake that fishes big. Many of you know it well and fish it hard, and year round. But the lake changes dramatically from day to day and during the late winter and early spring it can deliver the limit of a lifetime.

Which lake will show up? Will the bite be deep or shallow? Let’s find out as we begin our season on the best big bass fishery in the region!

A few reminders:

  • CKA has streamlined sign up and payment system for the 2021 season. All tournament fees are now through TourneyX.
  • CKA membership fees are now paid directly to:
  • CKA has a new payout structure. See website for details.
